HOA Assessments

Annual HOA dues for the year 2021 are $308

($154 due on January 1st and $154 due on July 1st)

Longwood Green is a deed restricted community in which homeowners are bound by our Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) and By-Laws. All HOA members must abide by the CC&Rs and By-Laws of the association. This includes paying annual assessments (HOA dues) that are billed semi-annually for convenience.  

Assessments are collected from homeowners to pay a share of the common expenses incurred in the daily upkeep and future maintenance of our community. The collected dues are apportioned into an operating fund and a reserve fund.

The operating fund is used to pay for ongoing daily-weekly-monthly expenses incurred by the HOA. The operating fund typically pays for items such as: street lights, electricity for street/entry lights, water for irrigation of common areas, mowing of common areas, maintenance of entry ways, insurance for common areas, attorney expenses, property management fees, repairs, office supplies/postage, filing federal/state corporate returns, etc.

The reserve fund is used for infrequent repairs and maintenance issues that tend to be a large expense. Re-paving our community roads is an example of an infrequent but large expense that the HOA incurs. This community was originally paved in 1986. The roads were re-paved 18 years laters in 2004 at an expense to the Association of approximately $64,000. If the current pavement lasts 18 years then the roads may need to be re-paved in the year 2022. The cost of re-paving the roads in today dollars is approximately $120,000. A 2012 estimation of paving costs can be seen HERE.
